Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events.

Blog Every Day In May - Happy Mail Sent

Back in February, I started a small list of people I planned to send some Happy Mail to over the next month. Well, March came and went and time kept speeding by, but I was finally able to get a few cards created and in the mail by the end of April. Taking INSPIRATION from the BPC Postmarked class on watercolor cards, I used my gelatos and water pen to create stripes and backgrounds for these cards.


These rainbow stripes are my favorite - I'll definitely be doing this again!


I left the inside of the cards mostly blank so I'd have plenty of room to write a note to each recipient.


Have you sent or received any Happy Mail lately?


Today I'm linking up with Cate and her challenge to blog every day in May. Click here to join in!

Cute cards. I haven't sent any happy mail, but I really need to... definitely there are days when I wish I didn't have so many interests so that life could sslow down and I could catch up a bit!

I've been the recipient of several lovely surprises lately: each has come when a boost was needed, so I have been very grateful. I bet your cards will go down a treat

I received a lovely postcard a month or so, totally out of the blue. It really made me smile x

I think I need to move that class higher up my "must do" list, I've been busting to play with watercolours, and those cards look great!

I've received a couple of lovely packages in the mail recently---both blog wins. I've sent a lot of cards, but they don't qualify for happy mail as they were all for special events.

Fabulous cards! I have not received any happy mail except a wedding invitation (that is very happy) and some goodies I've ordered. :)
